A project or two....
My friend and I are trading pets on blocks this week. Above you see a very miniaturized version of Hank, my Yorkie, on an old toy block embellished with paper. I have a few more embellishments to add but have to wait for for some glue to dry.
We were inspired by and article in this magazine called "puppy love."
I have been thinking a lot about felt animals since April sent me Mr. Rat. T. Rat. Yesterday I made him a companion. Not sure where this will all lead. Somehow, I think that baby rodents are NOT in the future.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we have had yet another bad storm. Everything is coated with ice and slippery. It is pretty in its own way but very difficult to navigate by foot.
I know that some of my readers are in much warmer climates where there is no snow at all. Right now, I find that hard to imagine. In the past 24 hours, our furnace went out. It was repaired rapidly within three hours much to our surprise. The prospect of being without heat too long was frightening. On Saturday , the water mains on our street froze and were without water for 12 hours. We take conveniences for granted and miss them so badly when they are on the fritz.
Thanks for dropping by this hodgepodge world of DollzandThingz. Enjoy the day wherever you are, whatever the weather!
